Clear skies over Mumbai #SkywatchFriday


You can see forever in a clear sky

For those of you who have been following my blog, this post should have been my first from the New World. Last Friday we were scheduled to fly out but had to postpone the flight as Ms Papaya was unwell.

In hind sight perhaps it was just as well for no sooner did we cancel our tickets than the skies cleared up !

Mumbai has 4-8 clear days in the year when the smog lifts and the grit is washed away and you can see a clean and clear sky.

This week was one such lucky time when I could see right up to the horizon…

Normally, you can’t see much beyond the skyscraper in the foreground.

Today it seems you can see forever

And finally a gorgeous sunrise

The sunny sky continued this morning after a brief pre-dawn shower to welcome the day with a blazing sunrise

Isn’t this a perfect sunrise?

Have a great weekend all!
